Would you say that to your friend?
Thursday, July 28, 2016      7 comments

Week Five

About a month ago, I re-started on my healthy journey. Prior to that, I did a lot of soul searching about why I want to lose weight, what are my obstacles, what things have worked for me, what food items I have a hard time putting down once I s... Read more

Monday, May 23, 2016      4 comments

I recently realized that I have fallen back into the diet mentality. I've basically been thinking about how much I can eat and still stay near my calorie range. The word 'diet' has such negative connotations, at least for me. When I think of ... Read more

Between 7/15/2010 and 7/15/2011, I lost 50 pounds. My doctor said I was an inspiration to others. I was so incredibly proud of myself. I could buy cute clothes, my knees felt better, things were good. As of 5/11/2016, I have gained 20 ... Read more
The Sad Truth is . . .
Sunday, March 15, 2015      7 comments

The sad truth is, I'm not sure I believe I can do this anymore. My favorite quote I adopted from SparkPeople from the beginning is, "Those who believe they can do something are probably right - and so are those who believe they can't." (a versi... Read more
Looking for Happiness in a Piece of Pie
Monday, July 14, 2014      3 comments

Everyone on this site, and everyone struggling with weight issues knows the reason we eat is not because we are hungry. We are emotional eaters. I eat because I'm bored, tired, sad, happy, lonely, or stressed. I eat because at that moment, th... Read more

I am so tired of losing and gaining the same 3 pounds over and over. This has been going on for far too long. I know I have no one to blame but myself. "Why this continuous cycle?" I ask myself. Well I have plenty of EXCUSES. It's a celebra... Read more
Ahah . . .
Wednesday, October 17, 2012      1 comments

I had kind of an ahah moment this morning. I do pretty well with my eating habits all day long, but then in the evening I haven't been doing very well. This morning I realized that's because I plan my snacks and meals right up through dinner, ... Read more

Good Enough?
Tuesday, March 27, 2012      1 comments

The first time I visited my doctor after I lost a bunch of weight, he was really impressed. He said I was an inspiration, and that felt so good. We talked about BMI charts. He is not a huge believer because they are too simplistic. He basica... Read more

My daughters wanted to make a quick trip to Old Navy last night. Ok, let's go right now. There was a time when nothing at Old Navy fit me. So we're looking around, and I try a few things on, and hey, I could actually buy clothes here now! Th... Read more
If you screwed up yesterday . . .
Sunday, March 04, 2012      4 comments

You're not alone! Yesterday I didn't measure, didn't record, ate a lot of junk, and even fell into the old 'I've already messed up today, so I might as well eat whatever I want and start fresh tomorrow.' I haven't fallen for that in a long tim... Read more

This is a follow up to yesterday's blog . . . So on the way home, I seriously considered driving through McDonald's for some fries, but I resisted. I got home with a plan to cook and eat somewhat reasonably, but my daughter said it was jus... Read more
